The Samaria Military Court on Tuesday convicted 18-year-old Hakim Awad for the murder of five members of the Fogel family in the Itamar settlement.

Awad admitted to the charges against him in the indictment, according to which he murdered together with partner Amjad Awad the members of the Vogel family in March.

The sentencing hearing was postponed to a later date, while a hearing from Amjad Awad is expected to be held later this month.
